A is most correct. http://www.usa.gov/directory/federal/F.shtml B is not correct, particularly since the percentage has decreased in recent years. http://www.businessinsider.com/percentage-of-americans-work-for-the-government-2012-7 C is not correct. The federal government has rules and procedures in place to avoid hiring people based on their political affiliation, except for the heads of agencies, who are appointed. D. Actually, the largest percentage of federal workers is in Colorado Springs, Colorado. http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2013/10/02/its-not-just-d-c-heres-where-the-shutdown-will-hit-across-the-country/ E. Unfortunately, Americans don't seem to reject any kind of stereotypes, including those of federal government workers as faceless pencil pushers. So clueless. This question was undeniably NOT "vague." You need to work on your Google-Fu.
